2 DWIN Ride on over to Lexington, and enjoy some of the most beautiful countryside anywhere. Our trails and major roadway bike lanes have helped achieve bronze-level status from the League of American Bicyclists, and we re pedaling hard toward silver. Recently, a citizens group envisioned a new plan for Rupp Arena, reinventing it and the area surrounding it. And at the heart of that plan, re-cycle, a call for connecting the dots on cycling routes that now lack continuity. As we work to Build a Great American City we know a comprehensive public transportation plan is essential. That plan must include encouraging cycling. -Lexington Mayor, Jim Gray

4 BIKE LEXINGTON MAP Select the route or facility type that matches your comfort and skill level. SHARED USE TRAIL Off-road paved trails that are for shared use by cyclists, pedestrians, skaters and other non-motorized traffic. BIKE LANE A separate, marked lane on the street for cyclists. BIKE ROUTE OR SHARROW Streets with Bike Route signs or "Sharrows" (shared lane markings) where you share the road with motor vehicles. PREFERRED ROUTE Streets that are wider or have lower traffic speeds or volumes where an average cyclist would feel comfortable sharing the road with motorists.

5 PAVED SHOULDER A paved area outside the right-most vehicular travel lane that may be used by bicycles and disabled vehicles. These are generally on higher speed mulit-lane arterials. PFLAUM RD LOCAL STREET Neighborhood streets that are generally good for bicycling due to lower traffic volumes and speeds. PARK & SHARED WALKWAYS Paved walking paths and campus shared walkways not designed for bicycling speeds. Please go slow or walk your bike. No cycling in the UK Arboretum, McConnell Springs, or on downtown sidewalks. MAJOR STREETS Collector and arterial streets that have higher traffic volumes and speeds. The bicycle facilities and preferred routes indicated on this map are for informational purposes only and do not imply a required route or a higher level of maintenance. The speed and volume of traffic as well as the operating space for bicyclists will vary depending on the street and time of day. The user of this map assumes full responsibility for their safety. You are the best judge of of the most suitable streets for your needs based on your skill and comfort level in different traffic situations.

6 SHARED-USE PATH ETIQUETTE These paths are used by a variety of users; including bicycle commuters, recreational bicyclists, families, pedestrians and skaters. By following a few basic rules, these paths can be shared safely by all users. All users should keep to the right side of the path, except to pass. When traveling side-by-side, stay on the right half of the path. Faster users should yield to slower users. Always travel at a safe speed, with due regard for others. Faster users may want to consider alternate routes to ensure the safety of all users. Pass others on the left by slowing down, giving an audible warning such as calling out, Excuse me, passing left, and waiting for a reaction before passing. Move off the pathway when stopping. Be careful when crossing streets and driveways. Watch for traffic and make sure other drivers are aware of the path and your presence. PASSING ON YOUR LEFT!! LEXINGTON S SHARED USE TRAILS As of 2012, Lexington has 23 miles of shared use trails that are off-street paved paths for non-motorized travel. An additional 7 miles of paths are planned and funded, and another 60 miles are proposed in the LFUCG Greenway Master Plan.

8 RULES TO SHARE THE ROAD Accept the responsibilities that go along with your rights Kentucky laws recognize bicycles as vehicles and give you, the bicycle driver, the right to use most roads. Along with this right comes the responsibility to obey the same laws as other drivers. Understanding a few basic concepts can go a long way towards reducing the conflicts between motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians STOP TOP! Obey Traffic Signals & Signs As a vehicle, bicycles must obey all the Rules of the Road. Cyclists have the same privileges and duties as other vehicles.! NO! YES Always Ride with Traffic Riding against traffic is unpredictable. Drivers turning at intersections, exiting driveways or leaving parking spaces are not expecting wrong way bicyclists. NOO! YEY ESS Ride to the Right in a Straight Line Ride as far to the right as practicable, but stay far enough away from the curb to avoid hazards. Ride in a straight line at least three feet away from the curb to allow room for moving around road hazards. Watch for cars entering from driveways. NOO! YEY ESS Passing moving or stopped cars Three feet of clearance is best when passing moving or stopped cars or bicycles. Motorists passing bicycles also should give three feet of clearance. Riding Two Abreast Ride single file when other traffic is present. Riding two-abreast is permitted as long as other traffic is not impeded. ONLY SIGNAL Changing Lanes To change lanes, look behind you for traffic and signal first. Traffic in the lane you want to move into has the right of way. Look back and wait for an opening in traffic before moving over. LOOK

9 RULES TO SHARE THE ROAD Accept the responsibilities that go along with your rights Making Left Turns There are two ways to make a left turn: 1) Look back for traffic, signal, then move when safe. 2) Ride straight through the intersection, dismount at the opposite corner and walk your bike across the street. NO!! Pay Attention to Motorists Making Right-Hand Turns Be alert for drivers speeding up then slowing down as they pass you. Do not pass cars on the right near intersections; you will be in the driver s blind spot. Do not rely on other drivers turn signals. Scan the Road Ahead At intersections, watch for turning cars and pedestrians. When mid-block, watch for cars pulling out of driveways, alleys and parking spaces. Make eye contact with other drivers. Yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks. Be Careful at Intersections Most accidents happen at intersections. Proceed carefully, make sure you are visible, and signal your intentions. Make eye contact with drivers. Be visible. Ride further out in the lane as you approach intersections. Be prepared to stop or make an emergency turn if necessary. Vehicles making turns can be particularly dangerous. NON O NON O NON O YESS NON O Passing Busses Pass busses on the left. Bus drivers have blind spots to their right and rear. Passing on the right could get you squeezed against the curb if the bus pulls over. Be prepared to stop for pedestrians who may cross the street in front of bus. R R Crossing Railroad Tracks Cross railroad tracks at a right angle to avoid getting your front wheel caught. Slow down and look behind you for traffic. Change your lane position if necessary to line up to cross the tracks at a right angle. Return to your original lane position after crossing the tracks.

10 PUT A LOCK ON IT! BICYCLE PARKING The best way to prevent bicycle theft is by locking your bicycle to one of the many racks located in the downtown and campus areas. Effectively use a bike rack as shown below. Tips to keep your bike safe. 1. Buy the best lock you can afford. U-locks alone, or with a chain lock, offer the best protection. 2. If you cannot find a bike rack, lock your bike to a sturdy structure in a well-lit area that does not impeed the travel of pedestrians or persons with disabilities. FUNDAMENTALS OF BIKE SAFETY Always Wear a Properly Fitted Helmet YES NO Helmets significantly reduce the risk of sustaining serious head injury in the event of a crash. Every bicyclist, regardless of age or ability, should wear a properly fitted helmet. Communicate with Other Drivers LEFT RIGHT STOP SHOWN FROM BEHIND Make eye contact & signal you turns and lane changes. One person per Bicycle without Approved Carrier Riding double is only permitted when carrying a child in an approved seat or trailer or when riding on a bicycle that is designed to carry more than one person (i.e. tandem bicycle). Use Lights at Night and Always be Seen Always use a strong headlight and red tail light at night or when visibility is poor. Reflective clothing is also recommended. See and be seen!
